Surely because people have died they will not.
Because people have died in it, that is why I think it will never cruise again. That will not stop it being sold, renamed, re registered and turned into something else.

Look at Exxon Valdez, no one died and it didn't turn turtle, but the biggest environmental disasters ever, the ship was repaired and has been renamed numerous times, berthed in places like Milford Haven and no one really cares.

A cruise ship is subtlely different as it is more emotional with 1000's of people onboard, but it is not without precedence that such ships have accidents and are returned to service. I suspect there is also significant reputational damage to the Cruise Line.
